Leaving a wall of the house completely empty could, in some cases, compromise the visual impact and harmony of a room. Especially in large rooms, if they are not palaces or period houses, it is always advisable to decorate the walls with method, using different colours, wallpaper, silk-screen printing or elegant design accessories. And it is precisely the latter ones that we will deal with in this post.

Wall clocks

Design accessories, such as those of Vitra, can be easily combined with any furniture and style of the house but also with any wall colour. They are miniatures of iconic furniture, colourful coat hangers or elegant and sophisticated clocks.

Tapestry rugs

Another idea we propose you is to use tapestry carpets, such as Nanimarquina’s Hayon x Nani instead of a painting. These types of accessories, made entirely by hand, are true works of art.

Acoustic panels

How about, instead, using nice acoustic panels, like the Beetle from Sancal company, to decorate the wall of your living room? The designer was inspired by the exhibition rooms dedicated to entomology and their terrifying showcases of insects…

Coat hangers

If the empty wall is located at the entrance of the house or in the hallway an idea would be to opt for a wall hanger… maybe coloured or in contrast with the colour of the wall.

The sofa, together with a few other furnishing elements, is an essential presence; it represents the need for a comfortable place to rest and relax.

Over the years the shape of sofas have drastically changed, adapting to fashions, various types of homes and people needs.

Let’s see together the most common and peculiar characteristics to guide the choice on the model that is right for us.

Linear sofa

The most classic and elegant of shapes that will never go out of fashion. Usually it is a two or three seater sofa, but there are also larger ones. It is the best-selling form, which allows the sofa to be used alone or in combination with armchairs or other sofas to give life to the living room, the relaxation area for family and guests. Perfect for medium/small sized apartments.

Daybed

The daybed is a comfortable seat half bed and half sofa and results to be a winning choice for the decoration of modern and chic living rooms or even  bedrooms. Indeed a daybed is able to furnish in an elegant way; it can also be combined with other sofas or armchairs in order to add more seats.

Peninsula sofa

A variant of the linear sofa, definitely in vogue for a few years, is the one
with chaise longue. A seat is inserted as an end element
with a backrest but stretched out, so you can lie on it. It is an element
which gives additional comfort to the sofa, making it suitable for long pauses of relax.

Corner sofa

The corner model is perfect when inserted in very large and bright living rooms. This form of sofa is characterized by a strong vocation for conviviality. In fact, even if it does not take up more space than two linear sofas placed at right angles, it offers more seats and, above all, invites informality. It is also perfect for separating two distinct areas within the same space. It can be placed against the wall or in the middle of the room.

Island sofa

An “island” sofa is a sofa that allows you to sit on several sides. Obviously it is a sofa that cannot be placed next to the walls but which finds its place in the middle of the room. It is perfect in modern environments and creates a relaxed atmosphere. The shape is often irregular to allow more than one sitting mode, comfort being its strength.

Designer sofa

If you love art and design and you are looking for an “important” sofa from an aesthetic point of view, you can opt for a sculptural model with an original and artistic shape. Perfect for sophisticated environments that privilege image over functionality.

The 5 most comfortable design armchairs of 2020: enveloping, soft and obviously very chic.

kristalia brioni collection

Beautiful to see and even more enjoyable to use! This is the trend for 2020 with collections of upholstered armchairs with original design focused on comfort and intensive use of the product itself.

Let’s discover together the models and features of the 5 most comfortable design armchairs of 2020!

Kristalia Brioni armchair

Inspired by the Adriatic Sea archipelago of the same name, Brioni is a collection of seats consisting of lounge chairs, daybeds and poufs with a soft and full look. Designed initially for outdoor use, the six Brioni elements have been redesigned by LucidiPevere for domestic use: the entire surface of the seat is now upholstered in fabric or leather, without the dark lower band that avoided contact with the ground.

Kristalia Tenso armchair

Designed by Luca Nichetto, Tenso is a system composed of padded elements inspired by tensile structures. The fulcrum of the system is the frame, a light and solid tubular structure on which the various elements – seats, backrests, cushions and table tops – are fixed, creating a tension that keeps the various parts suspended and open, like a welcoming embrace. The upholstered elements, to be combined at will to create armchairs, sofas, sofas with peninsula or pouf, even with built-in table tops, are soft and comfortable, while the fabric or leather upholstery features tailored details.

Miniforms Botera armchair

The Botera armchair is available in two different heights and in a various range of upholsteries in order to satisfy all user’s tastes and needs.

Fritz Hansen Egg armchair

The Egg is one of the triumphs of Jacobsen’s total design – a sculptural contrast to the building’s almost exclusively vertical and horizontal surfaces. The Egg sprang from a new technique, which Jacobsen was the first to use; a strong foam inner shell underneath the upholstery. Experience originality and design that ages with beauty with the Egg in leather and indulge in its sculptural curves that will last for generations.

Sancal Alpino armchair

The designer took inspiration by nature and in particular by mountains. The soft peaks of the base and back cushions overlap, just like a mountain range. The backrest nestles your head in a comfortable position; ideal for binge-watching, reading or dozing off after a walk in the countryside. A serene and simple design, not without constructive complexity due to its unique arm shapes and the soft yet thin backrests. The Alpino armchair is available in 2 different models and in a wide range of upholsteries and colours in order to satisfy all user’s tastes.

Your New Sofa Buying Guide

Your New Sofa Buying Guide for the purchasing of one of the most important item for your home or office.

 

Buying a new, design sofa is not an easy undertaking and could become very challenging; There are many factors to consider in addition to the purchase cost, the brand to choose and the model.
That’s why we decided to provide an easy and smart guide, called “Your New Sofa Buying Guide”, in which we have collected all the inspiration and essential hints and tips you’ll need when considering one of the most important purchases for your home or office.

The Available Space.

Recent studies on people’s habits when they are at home show that we spend most of our time in the living room, sitting or lying on the sofa. We watch television, surf the Internet or simply relax after a long day’s work. So the choice is extremely important!
Always pay close attention to the available space so that you do not buy a sofa that is too large, that compromises the visual impact of the entire space, or that is too small not to be useful for use.
Consider the light points of the room, both natural and artificial. The number of people who will use it, large families with children or only adults such as relatives or friends, in this case you might consider buying a corner sofa, for example.

Measure up your living room

Beware that before buying a sofa you need to have in mind the size of the living room, but also the access points to the living room itself and to your home. Can the sofa be transported by elevator? Will it pass through the stairwell and the front door? If not, can it be passed through the window? And finally, will the supplier’s truck be able to pass through the street where we live and stay in front of our house?
These could be problems, easily solved, to take into account before making the purchase so as not to waste money and time unnecessarily.

Style and Comfort.

Modern, classic, vintage or iconic style… modular sofas with chaise longue with or without armrests… there’s something for everyone!
Bizarre designs, enveloping shapes, soft and comfortable backrests enriched with hand stitching, precious fabrics such as cotton, velvet, natural leather, linen, wool or even cashmere such as, for example, the products of Modà Collection that uses the luxurious cashmere fabrics of Loro Piana.
In any case, comfort must be the first priority! In case of additional back support it is recommended to choose sofas with high or reclining backs, wide armrests for the arms and also chaise longue to stretch the legs so that you can squeeze a nap if necessary.

Which upholstery?

Fabric: it’s the most used upholstery because its very versatile and so it can be combined with any style and type of furnishing. It is also easy to wash and to keep cleaned. It is usually available in a very wide range of colours and variants: fabric trame, bubble, jeans, sponge…

Linen: it’s a very very elegant upholstery and is able to give a touch of style to any environment. It is a cool material which keep you fresh during summer and most of all is the most durable material for sofas.

Wool: perfect during the winter season, it keeps you warm and comfortable. Its elegant and, the most important thing, is characterized by its natural stain resistance. It expresses all its potential in the colours of light blue, green, ancient pink and beige.

Leather: it’s the most exclusive and luxury upholstery. A bit expensive but, if it’s well maintained, it can last en entire life! The more time passes the more leather becomes precious and charming adding character and personality to the environment in which the sofa is inserted.
